I can't even tell you how excited I have been for this giveaway. I don't remember the last time I saw something this innovative, fresh and just outright cool. The styling of the pictures (view more here), the jewelry itself, I could stare at it all day long. It makes me happy just thinking about it.
Most jewelry doesn't really enthuse me. So I thought I'd try my hand at making some that does. After all, if all art is collecting and arranging and rearranging the arrangements, who says I can't clew my talents, throw the output at the wall and see what sticks. This wall turns out, is the interweb. Here it is in stage one of production, the conceptually driven...
You'll find the etsy store stocked full of design after design of nature inspired goodness. Each comes packaged just like a bug display and the names (though most I can't pronounce) make me love the line even more, so much so, I find myself wanting to surprise everyone I know with a PHYLUM KINGDOM piece just so they can experience the wonder for themselves.
I've been dropping hints to my husband for Valentine's day... I'm hoping he's picking them up. Here are just a few of pieces I would love to have. Vegrandis vigeo earrings, Pyrrhia umbra necklace, Cuprum cerule earrings and the Aphelion vitum necklace.
Each piece makes a statement without screaming "look at me" and isn't that exactly how jewelry is supposed to be?
Todays winner will receive the Acerglabrium orbis ($42) inspired by old tree rings, the wood hangs suspended from nylon copper wire, 26".
